My ancestor was born, we believe, in Kilrae , Derry, Ireland in about 1765. His wife was Ellen Duffin (all I have is a name so no profile). They had a son, Lawrence [[O’Regan-201]] also born in Derry in about 1800. His wife was [[McKinley-2719]]. Lawrence died in Hopewell, Albert, New Brunswick in about 1861. A complete tree to my generation exists.
The problem, of course, is that [[O’Regan-202]] is a brickwall and I have no idea where to start. I’ve read that for some reason records are hard to access.
Would someone be kind enough to point me in the right direction?
